Our Yoga Instructors
Come and meet some of our inspiring Yoga instructors and celebrate IDoY with them. Below, our instructors share some of their personal experiences with Yoga and Meditation.
Meet Claudia, she has been a Yogi for almost 10 years now. Her journey started in 2014 where she began the practice of Mysore Ashtanga Yoga primary series.
“I became passionate and curious about my breath and mind body connection when practicing asana (postures). Over the years I’ve formed a deeper understanding and relationship with my body and how it responds to movement and stillness on the mat so I can navigate more presently off the mat in the outside world.” Claudia says.
Claudia’s classes incorporate a combination of Vinyasa (dynamic flow), Hatha (gentle flow), Ashtanga and Pranayama (breath) sequencing with the intention of releasing tension in the body and mind by connecting breath with postures.
She uses a combined knowledge of mindfulness and pranayama breathing techniques to cultivate awareness with sensation in the body through the physical practice of yoga.
Now introducing Kat, she has practiced yoga for over 20 years. She is very passionate about movement and fitness for everybody - irrespective of size, shape, age, ability and background.
Kat’s classes are based on the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa flow system and includes asana, pranayama and meditation. The focus of Kat’s teaching is for participants to fully experience the breath and a sense of embodiment and also an awareness that as beings, we are greater than the sum of our body and our minds.
Finally, meet Divyani. For her, Yoga is a way of life - living mindfully, being open to giving and receiving, moving through life one breath at a time.
“The many holistic benefits of yoga I have experienced and witnessed first-hand, fuel my passion to help others explore and spread the light of yoga.”
Why should you try Yoga?
It’s becoming increasingly important to find moments of calm and relaxation in our busy everyday lives. That's where the practice of yoga and meditation comes in. Beyond the physical exercises and mindfulness techniques, yoga and meditation offer countless benefits that can transform our lives.
1. Stress reduction: Both yoga and meditation have been shown to reduce stress levels by activating the relaxation response in the body, lowering the production of stress hormones like cortisol and promoting a sense of calm and well-being.
2. Improved physical health: Regular practice of yoga can enhance flexibility, strength, and balance. It can also improve cardiovascular health and increase energy levels. It has been linked to various physical benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, boosting the immune system, and improving sleep.
3. Mental clarity and focus: Yoga and meditation can sharpen your mental focus and enhance cognitive abilities. Through mindfulness meditation, you can learn to stay present, improve attention span, and reduce mind-wandering, leading to increased productivity and concentration in daily life.
4. Better sleep: Many people struggle with sleep issues, such as insomnia or poor sleep quality. Yoga and meditation can help relax the body and calm the mind, promoting better sleep. Certain yoga poses and breathing techniques are specifically beneficial for preparing the body for restful sleep.
5. Improved mindfulness and presence: Yoga and meditation teach you to be fully present in the current moment, enhancing your ability to appreciate and experience life more deeply. By practicing mindfulness, you can develop a greater sense of gratitude, compassion, and joy in everyday activities.
So, take a deep breath, roll out your mat, and embrace the yoga and meditation journey that awaits!
